Projects in Study or Design
14th and Highway 6 Safety Improvement Project
This project will evaluate and provide safety improvements for the on-ramp to eastbound U.S. 6 (Cornhusker Highway) from N. 14th Street in the City of Lincoln. This may include reconstruction of the intersection at N. 14th Street with the eastbound U.S. Highway 6 off-ramp and portions of U.S. Highway 6.
14th Street - Warlick Blvd - Old Cheney Road Intersection Improvement Project
A first of its kind traffic design competition is being tried to improve the 14th Street/Warlick Blvd/Old Cheney Road Intersection. Safety and minimizing congestion at peak traffic flow times in the morning and afternoon are top priorities. Other key issues are improving connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists, aesthetics, minimizing right-of-way impacts, all in a cost-effective solution.
NW 48th from West "O" to Highway 34
Currently a two-lane roadway, NW 48th Street will be designed as a four-lane divided road between West O Street and Highway 34.
49th and Rentworth Storm Drain Improvements
This project includes the installation of additional storm sewer pipe and inlets. These additions will improve drainage by allowing more water to be removed from the street, which will reduce ponding and street flooding.
56th and Colfax Storm Drain Project
This project will consist of analyzing two different alternatives to increase the capacity of the trunk line. Each option will be designed to 30% plans and then compared to determine the preferred alignment to proceed toward final design. Cost, feasibility, and effectiveness will all be factors in selecting the final design route.
58th and Wilshire Storm Drain Improvement Project
This project involves the replacement of deficient pipes with larger diameter pipes capable of conveying the runoff for a 10-year recurrence rain event. The addition of two new inlets is also proposed for this project.
56th from Old Cheney to Shadow Pines
The roadway will be designed as a 4-lane paved section with turn lanes and a raised median.
56th from Pine Lake to Yankee Hill
This project includes reconstruction of 56th Street from Thompson Creek Blvd. through Yankee Hill, and improvements at the intersection of Yankee Hill Road and 56th Street.
70th from Van Dorn to Eastborough - Pavement Repair Project
The City of Lincoln is proposing a concrete pavement repair and pedestrian signal replacement project along 70th Street between Van Dorn Street and Eastborough Lane. The project is currently in the design stage and is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2015.
West "A" from SW 40th to Coddington
Preliminary plans have been prepared for West "A" Street from just west of Coddington Avenue to just west of SW 40th Street. The plans include include curb and gutter, storm sewer, sidewalks, and right and left turn lanes where appropriate. Because funding has not been identified for right of way or construction, the project has been placed on-hold indefinitely.
Antelope Park Water Quality Projects
Water quality features included in the project are bioretention cells and swales, pervious pavement, amended soils, a "green roof" and a rainwater harvesting cistern. The project also includes educational components.
The East Beltway will constitute the east leg of a circumferential freeway system around Lincoln that will be made up of Interstate 80 to the north, the Homestead Expressway (Hwy 77) to the west, and the South Beltway to the south.
South Beltway (NDOR)
The South Beltway will be a new four-lane freeway across the southern suburban area of Lincoln and Lancaster County.
West Beltway (NDOR)
The project involves upgrading existing US-77 to freeway standards from Saltillo Road, north to I-80.
Coddington and West Van Dorn Safety Project
The goal of the project is to improve safety at this high-accident location.
"J" and "L" from 53rd to 55th - Stormwater Drainage Project
This project is located in the Dead Mans Run watershed bounded by "J" and "L" Streets, from 53rd to 55th. The City of Lincoln is seeking to remedy some of the drainage issues in this area. Construction is tentatively scheduled for late Fall 2013.
Old Cheney from 70th to 82nd
Because of rising traffic volumes, the existing two-lane, rural street will be upgraded to an urban four-lane roadway with curbs and gutters and left-turn lanes. Construction is scheduled to begin early 2014.
Old Cheney Road and Salt Creek Near Wilderness Park - Drainage Study Review
In 2004, a drainage study of the stream along Old Cheney Road between Warlick Boulevard and Salt Creek was completed to review the flooding along Old Cheney Road, and several of the recommended improvements were completed in 2009. The City of Lincoln has hired Kirkham Michael to update the 2004 drainage study.
Pine Lake from 56th to Highway 2
The roadway will have 4 lanes with turn lanes, a raised median, sidewalks, curbs, and storm sewers.
Roper Park Stream Stability Project
The project involves bank stabilization to improve water quality and improve public health and safety. The design will consider numerous design options; including grade control structures, bridge abutment protection, channel reshaping, streambank toe stabilization, live planting bank stabilization, forestry management to reduce tree hazards, vegetative buffers along the creek, and bioretention areas.
US Hwy. 6 / Sun Valley Boulevard Study
This project is studying how to provide an efficient roadway, improve traffic operations, resolve existing roadway deficiencies, and accommodate locally adopted plans for US 6 between West 'O' Street and Cornhusker Highway.
Trendwood Park Water Quality BMP
Design goals consist of storm water detention from the urban watershed, sediment trapping and removal, and water quality improvement in Deadmans Run. Water Quality BMPs include wet or dry ponds that utilize native wetland vegetation and promote infiltration.
